JOHN SANTUCCI | new paintings

26 October -19 November 2016

“When we moved from Melbourne to Byron Bay a few years ago my work was mainly focused on surreal cityscapes and whimsical caravans, new surroundings launched thoughts of new directions. I didn’t want to pursue the obvious seascapes and lighthouses, instead I chose a subject that was quite literally staring me in the face.
Our garden was somewhat basic, but Byron’s weather means vegetation grows fast, really fast!
We planted madly, and this series is inspired by the fruits of that labour- a serene contemplation of form composition and natures incredible beauty.” John Santucci
